Shouldn’t be too hard to remember that just last week I was defending the AFI over their lack of horror lists in their Top 10 of 10 special. Well, last night I was checking out the showtimes for MONGOL and noticed that they had finally listed the lineup for their sequel to last year’s summer run of Totally Awesome Movies of the ’80s. Not to mention the Spielberg retrospective they’ll be rolling out over the next two months, either. My heart went all pitter patter.
I feel like many of my weekends for the rest of the summer have just been decided for me. Starting next week and spread out through August (where it gets real good), the lovely American Film Institute will be showcasing all of the following genre related cinema:
That is a bad man’s roster right there. Between these and some horrorfests of my own divising, this is going to be a fantastic summer of movies. Now with my luck the Gov will finally stop wasting our tax money, get their shit together and push the several times delayed Doha install closer. If I miss seeing THE THING on the big screen because I’m back in the searing Qatari dessert, well, I’ll be the saddest boy ever to miss seeing THE THING on the big screen because he was back in Molten Core the searing Qatari dessert.
